This video of the 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II racing through a British field like a rally car has been getting a lot of attention. The very luxurious Phantom is equipped with a naturally-aspirated 6.7-liter V-12 that delivers 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels.
It has an electronically limited top speed of 149 mph. With a weight of 5798-lbs, the vehicle can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in only 5.7 seconds. In this video, the driver of this Phantom attempts to show off the vehicle’s power in a very enthusiastic manner.
He demonstrates that the Phantom is highly capable of smoking its rear wheels, or swinging its tail out to create some impressive drifting. It also shows how its suspension is so effective at absorbing dips and dives on gravel roads, dirt tracks, and rutted grass.
Even when drifting sideways, the Rolls-Royce Phantom maintains its dignified presence. Viewers never lose sight of the stateliness of the Phantom with its price of $403,970 even when it appears to have rolled around in the mud.
